Women use poles made from saguaro ribs to knock off the saguaro fruit. The pulp is boiled down into a syrup. Some of the syrup is used to make a wine that is consumed during the rainmaking ceremony. The seeds are dried and used in the winter as a snack, or ground into flour and made into a gruel.

[Writes Dimmitt: ASaguaros are even more important to the O=odham peoples who have lived in their habitat for centuries. The high esteem O=odham have for saguaros is reflected in their many creation stories for this plant, which tend to share the common theme of people being turned into saguaros. These giant cacti are not only plants to the Tohono O=odham; they are another part of humanity.@]

The likelihood, however, is that the site is primarily prehistoric/protohistoric, with little or no indisputable Piman occupation. This is especially so in that Kino showed the site on the east side of the Santa Cruz River on his maps, whereas the Paloparado ruin is on the west side.]

Their houses, near the spring, are on the monument, but their fields of wheat and alfalfa are across the line in Mexico. They harvest their wheat and thresh it by hand, then grind it into flour with a heavy, old mill stone turned by a burro."
